Fly-half Dan Biggar kicked Ospreys to their first Heineken Cup win of the season with seven penalties out of seven in a 21-12 victory at the Liberty Stadium against Castres.
Amazingly, Biggar has claimed all of Ospreys' 55 points in the competition this year.
For Castres, who failed to get a losing bonus point, scrum-half Rory Kockott kicked all the points with four penalties.
Cardiff moved back top of Pool Two as they held off a late fightback from a profligate Glasgow side to win 9-7 and put the Scottish club on the verge of a Heineken Cup exit.
A long-range penalty from Rhys Patchell and two more from Leigh Halfpenny gave the Blues a cushion which they ultimately needed when Ryan Grant crossed in the 71st minute.
